Challenges with Personal Devices
Personal devices, computers, smartphones and everything in the middle, pose the largest last-mile threat to sensitive and regulatory data. Once data reaches personal devices, data will remain there forever, even after employees return to the office. Organizations may never have visibility of the data on these devices.
Risks Using Unsecured Public Networks
When working from home, employees typically connect to cloud applications using the public internet or Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). On the public internet, we know there is no security or privacy. However, if the objective is security of data, then the secured network infrastructure only offers security of data-in-transit. What happens before or after data reaches a personal device is not protected.
